The all-female Mystic Krewe of Nyx is once again finding itself amid a social media controversy.

On Monday, the krewe posted an appeal for new members on Twitter, inviting women to "ride with us" during the 2021 Carnival season.

Beneath the post, someone calling himself Richard Breua left a comment that disdained the Black Lives Matter movement and advocated "white power."

Breua's comment received only one "like" and it was from the Krewe of Nyx.

On Tuesday, the Twitter account was disabled and the founder of the organization, Julie Lea, blamed an "apprentice" for the "like" and issued an apology through the group's lawyer.

The news comes after the organization lost a significant number of members in June following an "All Lives Matter" post by Lea.
